About Britains Lead Garden

Please note that although these are predominately 1/32nd scale they can be used with the old 1/16th & 1/12th dolls houses. Although they will not be true to scale, generations of young children used these garden items with their old dolls houses. Some of these items are also from the Britains Farm range but which were used with the garden items.

1930s-1950s Britains Lead Gate & Hedges (549) @ £42.00

This is an extremely attractive three part item, with two separate hedge sections and a truly wonderful little gate that hooks onto a post hooks…so very British in style and so very 1930s!  All in good played with condition, just a little wear to the paintwork. It is so refreshing to have all the little hooks fully  intact – so often these were snapped off. It is gorgeous and would look truly wonderful in front of an old dolls house where scale does not matter….please take note of the measurements. When fully erected the whole item measures 7″ long x just under 2″ high at tallest point of hedge.

c1930s Britains Lead Cold Frame (064)  & Seed Box (069) @ £30.00

Here is a sought after Britains lead garden cold frame along with an increasingly rare Britains tiny lead seed box. The cold frame is in a well played with condition, considerable wear and marking to the paintwork…but I like to think it as having a wonderful “weathered” look and great character! It measures 1 3/4″ wide x 1 3/4″ long x 3/4″ at its highest point. The white lid has a handle and can slide in and out of the cold frame. The seed box really is tiny measuring just a fraction more than1/2″ long and 3/8″ wide , and has moulded detail that gives the illusion that there are many seedlings. Could look fantastic with an old dolls house or miniature garden setting.

Britains Lead Rockery

The rockery is made up of several different pieces,  available to buy as seen below. There are step pieces, straight pieces, corner pieces and even inner return corner pieces, all of which can be pushed together to make all kinds of rockery shapes – so can be quite versatile to a certain extent.


1930s Britains Lead Upper (057)  & Lower Rockery Steps (058) @ £18.50

These are two separate pieces that make up the steps. There is one upper and one lower section which when pushed together make a set of steps. Please note that there is a small metal fatigue hole in the top step but seeing as these are so old, I think they can be forgiven as the rest of this is in good played with condition. Would look fabulous with an antique or vintage dolls house, either at the front or back. Height of the top step measures 1″ high.
